My self-summary
Composer, trombonist, academic, and formerly a college professor, currently in Waterville, ME for the summer, heading possibly to Indianapolis afterwards. Spent the last 10 months living in Stockholm, Sweden on a Fulbright-Hayes Grant.

I travel a lot, for fun and for my vocation. I've learned a couple programming languages, all specialized toward music. I've worked with L.L. Cool J, Dave Mason, and Gin Blossoms while working for a production company. I've lived in Brooklyn, NY, South Jersey, Kansas City, Stockholm, Sweden and traveled all over the US and Europe.

Love to cook, be active outside, and go to concerts. My blog has gone "viral" a couple times, my music gets played occasionally, and I tend to overwork then completely crash.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to death metal shows, trying to line up interviews with metal musicians, finishing my DMA dissertation (a full length electroacoustic opera), researching the politics, folk themes, and social statement in death metal, and trying to get used to life in Sweden. I'm also continuing research into the analysis of interactive multimedia, mainly still working out a full methodology for approaching musical analysis of the medium. I work as a freelance audio engineer, mainly doing mastering these days. And commissions, always commissions. and programming. So many Markov chains. Harness the probability!!!
I’m really good at
music, audio engineer, teaching, cooking, qualitative analysis, writing, sleeping.
The first things people usually notice about me
smile, beard, hair, then laugh...usually because they make a comment about my smile/beard/hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: reading Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie, Formalized Music by Iannis Xennakis, The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World by R. Murray Schafer, and recently finished Angels in America: Pt. 2: Perestroika by Tony Kushner. Hope I get to see that play live someday. Otherwise I read mostly fantasy novels or heavy handed research (last research article was by Ian Quinn).

Movies: Uh...haven't really watched many lately. America Psycho, any Studio Ghibli (Nausicaa may be my favourite), Tough Guys Don't Dance (either brilliant or horrid).

Shows: right now, anything by Rooster Teeth. also like Archer, Futurama, random anime, and Drunk History. I hardly watch TV though.

Music: I'm really into metal, contemporary classical, and, well, a whole bunch of other stuff. Currently, Alfred Schnittke, Guillaume de Machaut, Massive Attack, Portishead, John Hollenbeck (Large Ensemble and smaller groups), E.S.T. (sad, I finally get to Sweden, but it's too late to see Esbjorn Svensson), Entombed, Krux, Opeth, In Flames, the fan in my room, the sound of the subway, the sound of the train going over the tunnel in Sundbyberg.

Food: Yes. I'm not too picky and love trying new things
The six things I could never do without
pencil, staff paper, pencil sharpener, bed roll (or something to sleep on), sheet(or something to pull over me), coffee (though it appears I'm trying...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, interactive multimedia, analysis, culture in America, philosophy, how I shouldn't think about such "heady" subjects all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
either at a gig, at a friend's gig, or staying at home happy I'm not at a gig. All of the above usually involve whiskey and/or beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm claustrophobic, so, yeah, don't tie me down. Literally...

You should message me if
You like classical music, metal music, experimental art, beards are a turn on, you appreciate when I quote Shakespeare, and can correct me when I get the lines wrong, and you've got a sense of humor (and can appreciate a bad pun).
